What our guests have said about this accommodation

Deirdre McCole
The camp was clean and well kept. I love the rondavels, they are simple yet comfortable. The staff were very courteous, friendly and helpful. The shop was well stocked but expensive. I was disappointed to see the restaurant is gone only to be replaced by a Wimpy. The pool was fabulous, I really had a great time there and I am looking forward to my next visit.
ANTOINETTE ABRAMS
Dit is prentjie mooi en die diens was 5 uit 5 en ons was gelukig om al die diere te sien
DAVE WILLIAMS
Thank you to dolan for his continued effort in making bookings and our stay fantastic all round
PETER MCGINLEY
Only one night in a family cottage but we immediately regretted we were not staying longer. Very nice camp with a sense of history to it - I hope Kruger stays like this.
Danie Pretorius
Friendly staff at reception. Very close to nature with camping site next to fence. Calming and relaxing atmosphere. Game viewing not on same level as at Lower Sabie region.

Was a very basic camp, it isn't the kind of camp that I will pay but for 1 night was good.

CAREN MACKAISER
Spent 5 days at Pretoriuskop. Loved the camp. Staff were friendly and helpful. The kitchen and ablutions were always clean. The Wimpy staff were even lovely. We saw the Big 5 twice driving between Pretoriuskop and Skukuza. Pretoriuskop has to be my favourite camp.

FIONA MACPHERSON
Excellent staff , clean facilities , great experience.
JENIFER BASSON
I was a bit apprehensive about the shared ablutions and kitchen, but was pleasantly surprised. We loved it so much that I think I will opt for these huts again next time. Hot water on tap for coffee, ...ablutions were really close and kept clean. Only frustration was no plug for chargers etc - have to pull plug out from fridge to charge phones. Bring a multi-plug with you! A bit disappointing to find a Wimpy in the Kruger, but they have done a good job to make it fit in.
Dori Moreno
Loved this camp. It's been recently revamped and everything was thought out, clean and in working order. We will be beach here.
Louise Treurnicht
Excellent service and help from Skukuza when our vehicle broke down on the Sabie River Road near Phabeni gate. In general I found staff very helpful and courteous and energetic and motivated.
Ann Thom
My husband and I had such a wonderful trip to the Kruger - Pretoriaskop was great -an old camp but it was just perfect. Skukuza is always great but more so because of the fantastic half marathon -the best in the country - was simply an amazing weekend - Thank you so much for allowing us to run in the park - what a treat!!
Christo
Neat, clean camp with friendly, helpful personnel.
ELIZABETH FERR

A very nice small interment camp. Good value for money with all amenities for self catering, giving a real comfortable bush getaway.

Excellent time spent in Pretoriuskop.

Gert Strydom
Excellent!.
EURELIA MEYER
No complaints, will definitely visit again.
Warnock Linda
We were most impressed with the service. First the booking was done quickly and easily despite it being a public holiday weekend. We were grateful to get accommodation. Your staff at the Croc Bridge entrance were most efficient, again despite their being a huge queue of cars. Having prebooked we were ushered through quickly and efficiently. A star performance by all, including the animals.
Warnock Linda
First class performance by all, including the animals.
GERRIE BASSON

elmarie horn
All fine, but campers was noisy.
Renate Ferreira
Had a fantastic time.
Marthinus Bester
From reception to leaving all was great.
EDYNE THOMAS
We stayed in a Hut and it was just lovely. It was bigger than the Hut we stayed in in Lower Sabie. It could sleep 3. It was clean and tidy and it was cleaned every day. The amenities that we could use (cooking stove, BBQ, ablution facilities) were all great. All in all the accommodation was a better experience than Lower Sabie We did not eat at the Wimpy restaurant so we can not comment on the food or service.
Mabel
At a glimpse can be seen that camping sites are not up to par. The chalets are very well kept. All in all we had a lovely stay in Kruger.
MARION ASCHMANN
The accommodation was really good, it was clean and perfect choice.
Qume Erasmus
Camping site was clean, the camping bathrooms were very clean, friendly staff at reception and at the shop and at wimpy. The only staff that were really not that friendly wast at the Kruger Gate check in.

Rondawel. Die kamp was netjies en skoon. Kon sien waarom dit die kamp van die jaar sertifikate het.

Accommodation was spacious ,clean, neat and well equipped. camp was also very restful, not as busy as the others...will definitely recommend.

Very spacious inside - enjoyed the bathroom! Monkeys were painful though around the chalets

Unorgettable trip in South Africa
We have spent 12 days as a family in South Africa with my 3 children and my wife who is in a wheelchair. Thanks to Pascal, Safari.com consultant, we were able to spend an unforgettable moment with a great program while being well accompanied despite our constraints. I recommand particularly the "Monwana game lodge" for a safari in Hoedspruit. It's an amazing place with very nice people and a real family atmosphere. Thank you to the entire Safari.com team for this unforgettable trip.

Superior service, knowledgeable, transparent, amazing can-do attitude
These guys get 10/10. I have booked with them a few times. To Kruger National Park, including both public and private(concession) camps, flights and car hire. Their senior agent, Dolan is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble. Attention to detail, transparency, and 'can-do' attitude are out of the ordinary. I recently came into contact with Tanya at safari.com as well. It looks like all their agents are similarly well trained. Thank you. I cannot recommend Dolan and his team highly enough.

Cape Town miracle
I was in Cape Town, South Africa recently for an athletic competition and had allowed myself a week of personal time to relax and properly conclude the trip, but had not bothered to plan a safari to occupy the time. I was skeptical of the cost and whether I would enjoy the experience, however a couple days into that final week it occurred to me, in a bit of a panic attack, what a waste it would be not to take advantage of this opportunity. I hopped online and started looking at flights to Johannesburg (almost all the safaris in SA start there with an early morning pick up), but it was basically impossible to get a flight early enough and/or to coordinate with the multiple safaris operating in or just outside of Kruger. With no apparent options available to turn my remaining 4 1/2 days into even a 3 day safari I stumbled on the most obvious website one could imagine, Safari.com. I'd completely given up negotiating all the variables on my own but here was a safari travel agent that might be able to help me .. and they were based right out of Cape Town, literally a stones throw from my lodgings. Serendipity, or so i hoped. I immediately sent out an email and crossed my fingers .. for roughly an hour and a half, at which point Dolan from Safari.com responded to me requesting I give him a call so that we could expedite potential arrangements. My in country phone plan wasn't able to make calls, but we arranged for him to call me and not 3 hours after being in the grip of despair Dolan got through to me and far from notifying me of how absurd it was to hold out hope for a literally, last minute safari adventure with barely 4 days available to me, he had already worked out all the details I'd sent and created a preliminary safari trip that would bypass Johannesburg airport for a flight the next morning to a closer, much, much smaller airport where I would be picked up taken, not to a 3 day safari, but a full 4 day safari, then back to the tiny, tiny airport for a return flight to Cape Town with 2 hours to spare for my return leg all the way home. It almost feels like an afterthought, after the minor miracle Dolan was able to conjure up, but the safari itself at Simbavati Lodge was just an absolutely stunning experience. The single "tent" he booked me was as luxurious as any 4 star hotel I've stayed in, the game drives, one every morning, one every evening were more amazing than I could have ever imagined, and the food, 3 meals a day with snacks and an open bar was sublime. I could go on about the wonderful staff, or the wonderful other safari goers you can meet and grab a drink with, or the different animals walking through the open lodge facilities daily .. but I've gone on long enough. I'll simply conclude by saying .. safari, absolutely, yes, do it, it is amazing. And when you do decide, Safari.com will do you right and if you have the pleasure of working with Dolan, do give him my thanks .. the entire experience was the best part of my trip :)

A great company
What to say! We planned a South African Safari for 2020 with Safari.com. We researched companies and took a chance on one we had never heard of before. Henry Franklin was our agent, we gave him our budget and wish list. He came up with a wonderful looking trip and we made our choices! Then came Covid, preventing us from going. We couldn’t have been in better hands. Henry rebooked everything for the next year. He kept us updated on how things looked there. When in 2021, we decided it still looked iffy, he rebooked us a second time for 2022. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we had in a rough time for all. We had a wonderful experience on our trip when we finally got to go!! Henry had everything so well organized and gave us a detailed list of what transfer companies would be meeting us and when. When Airlink bumped us and put us on standby returning from Victoria Falls, we called the concierge number Henry had given us and Catherine worked hard on this and got us back on our flight. The Safari.com team had our back and we have no regrets. Would definitely use them again. Our lodging was wonderful, saw the big 5 within first 2 drives. Henry definitely knew the territory and did a great job matching what we wanted with where he suggested we go and stay. Thanks Safari.com, Henry and Catherine!

I've recently interacted with Dolan and hands down he's been the best travel agent that I've every worked with. He was a wealth of experience and knowledge which shows volumes. He took into consideration my budget and my individual needs to tailor make a package with recommendations for my preference,he knows Kruger and Greater Kruger like the back of his hands and I will wholeheartedly recommended his services. He is truly an asset to his institution.
